Pollution and progress are two sides of a coin in developing countries though GPCB is very strict as far as setting the pollution control goes in Gujarat.
False. The GPCB is notorious for being in the back pockets of corporates big and small, which is a major reason why Gujarat attracts dirty, polluting industry disproportionately, with the concomitant puniness of the modern service industry in Gujarat.

Tamilnadu and Maharashtra, the other major hubs for the engineering industry, compete less on the basis of over-subsidised land and water, and tax give-aways and more on the quality of their human resources (both blue- and white-collar) where alas Gujrat is weak, since Gujratis are better at entrepreneurship and dhanda than at work in modern factories and offices!

Who will account for the untold state-subsidies in land, water and taxes to giant corporations with epic turnover in the tens of thousands of crores? Does the 'public' really gain, net-net? I think not. Such a model of 'development' is dubious and crony-istic, i am afraid, and should be rejected.

Maruti Suzuki India may save Rs 10,500 crore by not investing in Gujarat

Quote:
Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) said it "could earn about Rs 10,500 crore, assuming a post-tax return of 8.5 per cent per annum during the initial 15 year period of the CMA, from the savings of investments not made in Gujarat."

Maruti Suzuki fast tracks its production plans from its Gujarat plant.

Quote:
Originally, the Gujarat plant was scheduled to start production from May 2017 but we are likely to start from January 2017
Quote:
The production at Gujarat plant would begin from January and on a single-shift basis and the company is looking to churn out around 10,000 units from there in the current fiscal.

Maruti Suzuki to set up its own regional offices.

This is also in line with the plan of the firm to have 4,000 dealerships by 2020 while the production capacity will also sharply grow with the Gujarat plant beginning operations in early 2017. The firm is expecting an output of at least 10,000 units from the plant before the end of year 2016-17. The final capacity of the plant is expected to be 1.5 million units

Quote:
With its Gujarat plant slated to begin production towards the end of 2016-17, Maruti Suzuki is actively working on expanding and strengthening its distribution channel. It will focus on land acquisitions to set up its own regional offices, warehouses and transit vehicle parking stockyards. It is also identifying locations in metro and sub-metro cities to set up showrooms.
At present, Maruti has 16 regional offices, of which only about a quarter are owned by it while the rest are on leased properties. Accordingly, the setting up of company-owned offices as well as having showrooms on land owned by the company is aimed at saving rental outgo.
The regional transit vehicle parking stockyards are being set up to reduce transit time for vehicles from the manufacturing plants to various states. While two transit stockyards have become operational at Bengaluru and Nagpur each, other regions are now being explored

Buying their own premises for setting up offices is a good move. Rents and bills do account for a major chunk every month and hence, could otherwise take away a significant amount from the establishment's earnings.

Also, going out hunting spaces themselves for enhancing the dealer network simply shows how focussed they are towards achieving their target of 4k outlets. They're working hand in hand and being a financial support to their Dealer partners rather than just throwing away a profit making opportunity at them and asking them to put their money down first. This boosts up dealers' confidence exponentially and should be helpful for long-term business relations.

Coming to the Gujarat plant, the progress seems to be going at some serious pace. From everyone who's had invested in the region, only Suzuki is emerging out as a strong player with a full capacity utilisation plans already looking in place. Going ahead schedule and producing 10,000 cars until this financial year closes is something really commendable.

All others have just put in huge money by either just buying lands (Honda, earlier Peugeot) or also by going ahead and setting up complete facilities (Ford, Tata), but none has such volumes or growth targets to back their decision for such investments.

Whe we look at polluting industry Jajmau in Kanpur with 1000 tanneries takes the cake. Vote bank plus a powerful local MLA see to it that nothing is ever done.

Maruti Suzuki's Baleno first to roll out of new Gujarat plant in January 2017 .

Maruti is believed to be looking at initial units of around 85,000 units for the Baleno in Gujarat of which around half will be the 1.3-litre diesel variant,however there are no plans to shift the entire Baleno production to Gujarat .
The second model to roll out from the factory in 2018 will be the new Swift Dzire that is being developed on a new platform with many innovations.

The Hansalpur-based factory, which is Suzuki Motor Corp's first wholly-owned vehicle manufacturing unit in India, will see an estimated total investment of around $1,400 million. It will have two vehicle assembly lines, each capable of rolling out 2.5 lakh units per annum, and a separate engine plant.

The Baleno will roll out from the first assembly line of this facility. Suzuki will supply vehicles and components exclusively to MSIL from this plant.

Some information on Maruti-Suzuki's new Gujarat plant from my sources:


- About 4,000 Balenos were produced in it's first month - February 2017.

- Output rose to 8,010 Balenos for the month of March 2017.

- From April 2017 onwards, the plant is commissioned to produce 10,000 Balenos every month.

- Maruti-Suzuki will source assembly parts (both major and child) for the Baleno from it's Gurgaon plant till May 2017. One of MSIL's major vendors is setting up it's manufacturing plant in Gujarat which will be operational from May onwards, and then onwards the assembly parts will be sourced from there.

- The all-new 2017 Swift is forecasted to enter production by October 2017 onwards. This means we can expect the 2017 Swift to be launched by November, at the earliest.

- Target forecast for the Gujarat plant come October 2017 - 10,000 Balenos and 10,000 Swifts every month.

If you are talking about JBM/ Neel Metal then they already have at Ahmedabad. All Engines for Gujarat plant will come from Manesar for a while as they don't have any plans of setting up an engine shop yet.

Suzuki bolstering India auto output as competition revs up. Japanese automaker plans heavy investment to solidify leading market share.

Quote:
Suzuki aims to bolster supply not only for the Indian market, but for exports to Europe and Africa as well.
The third Gujarat production line will raise the automaker's total Indian output capacity to about 2.25 million vehicles, roughly 30% above the current tally, and lift India's proportion of Suzuki's worldwide production 10 percentage points to 60%.
Quote:
Suzuki announced a wide-ranging partnership with Toyota Motor in February, intending to collaborate in fields such as information technology and environmental concerns. Suzuki intends to free up more management resources to focus on India and other emerging economies by receiving know-how on cutting-edge technology -- an area where it has been lacking -- from Toyota.
